The first ten amendments of the twenty-seven in the U.S. Constitution are called The Bill of Rights. Each of the amendments are very important, but there is one in particular that I think has the most impact on our society. This would be the First Amendment. It states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” There are many ways these words are very significant. One of the many reasons the First Amendment is very important to our society is that it states that anyone can follow the religion of their choice, or no religion at all. During starting point of the new country, the founding fathers wanted to make America a safe place for people of different religions. These people could come here to escape execution. It was also stated that there should be no law prohibiting any religious practices. Anyone could practice their religion of choice under this amendment. Peaceful protest and petitioning the government’s choices is also allowed with no punishment. It gives citizens a voice in the country they live. If he or she thinks something is being wrongfully done in the government, peacefully protesting is a part of the rights the citizens are given. Unless threats are involved, speaking of what you believe in is permitted. This is another way the First Amendment impacts our society, mostly in today’s world. For example, at the beginning of 2018, millions of women and men gathered in several parts of the country for the Women’s March. They peacefully protested for many different reasons, such as racial and gender equality, as well as many more. Another right in the First Amendment is freedom of press. This basically means public press can write or say anything they want to, as long as it doesn’t threaten anyone. This can be a good thing, as well as a bad thing. A possible reason it’s good is because people get to speak their minds. A bad reason is the press can deliver false news to the public. I think the First Amendment is the most important because it affects every citizen in the United States of America. It gives all citizens the right to freedom of religion, speech, and press. If we didn’t have these things, we would have no voice in the decisions made for our home.
